Mixing subtlety with drama, Angel Lashes are the ideal wispy lash style for clients who want a natural lash look with textured boldness and elongation. Angel Lashes incorporate both wispy fans and textured spikes to create a very ethereal and lightweight look which still encapsulates all the drama which a set of lashes can achieve.
The process for creating the ultimate Angel Lashes is simple, we’re looking for a light and natural wispy yet spiky texture, so we recommend closed and narrow Volume Mayfair 0.07 2D lash fans to help you reach the desired effect. For clients with more sparse lashes you can include some slightly wider fans to close the gaps and accentuate the texture from the lash spikes.
